Betty Olivia Alston, 69, of Raleigh, departed this life on Sunday, January 25, 2015, at Wake Medical Center.
Betty attended Saint Monica's Catholic Church and Elementary School at an early age before a lifelong illness prevented her from continuing her formal education. She accepted her many challenges in a courageous and spirited manner.
Left to cherish her memory are her mother, Ms. Benice Alston of Raleigh; her very dedicated aunt, Ms. Dorothy Hinton of Raleigh; brothers, William AIston (Sharon) of Raleigh and Wesley Alston (Sally) of Garner; four nieces, one nephew.
A Graveside service will be conducted at 11:00am, Thursday, January 29, 2015, at Carolina Biblical Gardens, Garner, NC. The family expresses its everlasting gratitude to the proprietors and staff of Brookridge Assisted Living, in Apex, NC, for the kind, caring and patient service they provided to Betty throughout most of her life.
Arrangements by Haywood Funeral Home, Raleigh.
